Happy Birthday to my sweet Christiana. She's every mother's dream of a daughter and brings joy to all she is around. And today I celebrate 19 things I love about her.

1. Her kindness.

2. Her ability to make others feel special.

3. Her smile.

4. The way she dances.

5. Listening to her play the piano.

6. Her hair.

7. The way she does laundry.

8. Her natural nursing instinct. If your sick, she is there to help.

9. Her love for writing handwritten letters to people.

10. Her determination.

11. The way she sits on the front row, first chair in church. So cute.

12. Her style of clothing.

13. Her love and respect for her siblings.

14. Her feet. She has very pretty feet.

15. Her beauty that goes beyond skin deep.

16. Her love for Jesus.

17. Her love for her dad and their quirky ways together.

18. Her compassion for the hurting.

19. Her forgiveness.

Thank you Christiana, for teaching me how to be a better person. You are truly one in a million. I love you.

Happy 19th Birthday, Christiana! You were such a cutie-pie baby, a sweetheart of a child, and a mature and loving teenager. All of these qualities have continued to grow in you, and I'm so proud of the beautiful young woman you have become.

Happy birthday Christiana! Even though I don't get to see you as often as I would like, I COMPLETELY agree with everything your mom said! I remember having the most hilarious conversations with you when you were young and I was always amazed at how intelligent you were at such a young age. Love you!
